Blue Waters Kayaking Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking Kayak down rapids

Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is generally differentiated from canoeing by the fact that a kayak has a closed cockpit and a canoe has an open cockpit. However, there are many sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity. They also use a two bladed paddle. Another major difference is in the way the paddler sits in the boat. Kayakers sit in a seat on the bottom of the boat with their legs extended out in front of them. Canoeists will either sit on an elevated bench seat or kneel directly on the bottom of the boat.

Whitewater kayaking involves taking a kayak down rapids. Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking involves taking kayaks out on to the ocean or other open water i.e a lake. Sea kayaking can involve short paddles with a return to the starting point or "put-in" or expeditions covering many miles and days. Kayaking of all kinds has continued to increase in general popularity through the 1990s and early 21st century.

How to paddle a kayak

How to Cross Bow Rudder in Kayaking

This guide is designed to teach advanced kayakers how strokes of the paddle work in kayaking. If you are not experienced, you will need to read the basic strokes before attempting the rudder strokes.

The cross bow rudder strokes are similar to the bow rudder strokes. Yet, there is a slight difference. The bow passenger performs this act on the opposite side in which he normally paddles the kayak. The cross bow rudder stroke unlike the bow rudder stroke does not give you the time to switch hands.

During this action you must rotate or swivel your body. While in position prepare to swivel your body around toward the opposite direction, and then cross the bow. At the same time you want to scoop the blade downward toward the water.

To avoid ensnaring your hand between the gunwale and blade, make sure you bring the lower hand up, and place it on the shank (shaft) a few inches. Keep the paddle gripped near the armpit (left) and make sure the paddle’s blade dips into the water at a 40 degree angle.

Tip:

You can use the sweep strokes at a 90-degree angle and reach the same affect you would get from the cross bow rudder method. Sweep strokes are commonly used by kayakers and canoeists to turn the boat slightly without interrupted the direction.

How sweep strokes work?

You have choice. The first choice is to push over the bow. The second choice is to drive the kayak forward. The third method is to pull the stern toward the paddle.

How do other types of kayaking strokes work?

Well, it depends on the stroke in which many are employed in kayaking. For instance, the stern rudder stroke is similar to the bow rudder strokes. The bow rudder is the process where the bow passenger uses his paddles to steer the boat in the course which he is paddling the kayak.

The stern stroke is often utilized when the stern passenger cannot use the J-stroke method to redirect his kayak. Sometimes the direction the kayak is headed needs readjustment, thus the kayaker will employ the stern stroke to redirect the boat. Unlike the bow rudder stroke the person paddling the kayak will reverse his sweep and take a 120-degree angled turn rather than a 40-degree turn.

Tip:

If you need to make an immediate turn while kayaking the bow rudder strokes is ideal, yet a draw stroke would be more beneficial if you spotted a obstacle in the waters that could cause damage. The bow rudder strokes will slow the kayak.

Kayaks are sport canoes, which are often lightweight and made of fiberglass. The boats are utilized in whitewater rafting, leisure, and often in competitive sports. The older models were made of animal skin, which *Inuit boats held one or two passengers, which both would use double-blade paddles to control the kayak. Sometimes people use kayaks to travel or race.

Facts: *Inuit is Artic people, or people from Greenland. The members of these lands lived in coastal areas of the Artic, Greenland, and Canada. The languages of Inuit descendants constituted languages of three branches. The branches included the Eskimo Aleut family.

Canoeing has dated back for centuries, which the kayak is a form of canoe. Today, people are enjoying whitewater kayaking, traveling, cruising, and more. In fact, the Internet has posted many sites that offer vacations that include whitewater kayaking.

Kayaks are far more dangerous than canoes, since kayaks have closed seating arrangements, which you are often strapped in with knee and thigh straps. If you capsize (flip) the kayak, you had better learn steps to take to save your life.
